Todays Show and Tell is to share two Bluebirds work!
First we have Marilyn. Marilyn has shared lots in earlier show and tell posts and she makes things for herself, gifts and Grandchildren. She passed on her admiration of Kelleys sewing too!
Marilyn really wanted new night clothes but was finding the price of pure cotton that she prefers really expensive. She got thinking and found a duvet cover she was no longer using was 100% pure cotton and pretty prints. In fact one side was a contrast print to the other side.
So from one side she made herself pyjamas...
And the other side became a nightie...
Marilyn feels cool and comfy and they are so pretty. Well done!
I asked her if she minds being on the blog in her nightie and she said no... she is not wanted by the police and maybe she will get discovered by Victorias Secret!
Since our first email she has found crochet cotton in the thrift store so she is set to do some edgings on towels.
Thanks so much Marilyn for sharing. Fabric can be expensive as yarn can be also. But we can beat this!
Sheeting is also perfect for children's pyjamas, table linen, curtains, little dresses (as Kelley showed) and so many things. I watch out always for 100% cotton sheets in pretty prints. Thrift stores have me stocked up with reels of cotton, embroidery thread, sewing yarn, pattens, buttons and laces. All these things are worth putting into your sewing cupboard.
Now to Barb. Barb has been card making and she also has made cards to give away to help others at Christmas. The gift of cards in a pack or to use is a great gift!
She also made her first sale!! Congratulations Barb! The many benefits of crafting!
The other benefits certainly include joy. It is hard to think bad thoughts when working on something beautiful. It just does us good!
Well done Barb I love your cards!
Now I am just working on Show and Tell part 3. Wait until you see what is next!

The week is going well! Our ride on lawn mower is being delivered! What a help this will be! And we got two 10 x 10 meter nets for the two biggest fruit trees! Progress...
